This Week's Freebie from The 1937 Flood

This week's freebie features a sweet memory.

On some nights — our lucky ones — the ghosts come out during our rehearsals, and one of the friendliest is the spirit of our old friend, the late great fiddler J.P. Fraley.

Now, our Doug Chaffin played with J.P. for many, many years and learned scores of fiddle tunes from him. Perhaps our finest musical gift from J.P. was his teaching everyone the beautiful Pat Shaw composition, “Margaret’s Waltz.”

Here, in the sweetest moment from last night, is Doug’s rendering of this gorgeous tune, with assistance from Paul Martin and Sam St. Clair. Click to hear the tune.
